supporting SADI, hosting training seminars and supplying resources to the Alternate School Program, to
mention a few. Since 2013, we continue to honor our mandate in many ways such as fulfilling on-going
bursaries to the Okanagan College, an endowment to UBC for Medical Doctors in training, and
contribution to the Summerland Skate Park. Funds are committed to support the Food Programs at
